    e-city and e-citizens (summary)

    In contrast to traditional notions of topos (the actual structure of a city), utopia (an imaginary perfect future city) and dystopia (the pessimistic forecasts of a city’s development), the newly developing discourse of e-topia, focused on networked and digitalized cities, is hard to explain in simple terms. The e-topian description of a city combines its present state with possible states based on the analysis of the current social, economic and cultural situation, and thus the e-city is neither the purely physical city of the present nor the purely utopian or dystopian vision of its future.

    Referencing such diverse thinkers as Mitchell, Castells, McLuhan and Gates, philosopher Nerijus Milerius seeks to arrive at a veritable and critical description of the e-city and its e-citizens. Though a networked city like Vilnius claims itself to be absolutely inclusive and transparent, in reality the differentiation of power remains, albeit taking the form of the e-citizens’ unequal ability to design information flows and forms of participation (as opposed to merely being those information flows themselves). That’s where the notion of e-consciousness comes into play; while some e-citizens use the information technologies only occasionally, the e-conscious “information elite” use the e-city’s digital nervous system as a full-fledged extension of their own one, basing new priorities and opinions on the new media.
